    Re: American General Killed in Shooting at Afghan Military Academy

    How terribly sad. Like the thousands of Afghan and coalition troops that went before him he gave his life in defense of democracy and the values of civilization. The training facility received 10,000 applications from eager Afghan recruits and I can only hope that those in the overwhelming majority go on to graduate and serve honorably for their country. For every attack like this it's worth remembering that 12,000 members of the Afghan security forces have died fighting the Taliban and its allies and frequent polls and voter participation have shown that support for the Taliban is in the minority. Yet it wouldn't be the first time a violent and entrenched minority has destroyed a country or an entire region.

    You seem to be missing something.

    It was a united American government, with the full support of a united American people that took us in.

    Can we please stop referring to Afghanistan as "the Middle East"? It is NOT the Middle East.

    Did 100% of our Congressmen and Senators vote for the war of choice in Iraq?
    Why are you hiding from my question about Cheney going into the wrong country in 2001?

    Sure is nice when the Dems support the GOPs for foreign policy.
    Dems rarely see thaqt reciprocated.

    Remember how hard it was for your GOP to congratulate Obama on Usama.
    Most of you Francoist ConservaTEAs went right to crediting Bush, didn't you ?

    I was hoping you would lamely try to play the "Godwin" card.
    Denying that Israel was formed due to the Holocaust removes you from intelligent conversation.

    So yes, Hitler still lives on in the Middle East, just as Hitler was formed by WW 1.
    The Middle East was formed by WW 2.
    You won't have to worry about what is formed from WW 3.

    And please stuff your "poor little oh me indignant" card where it belongs .

    Well, then, the general did not die if vain. He gave the Obamaissatan guys something else to rant about.

    Do you understand what, "enemy action", means? General Hochmuth died when his aircraft exploded, in flight. Witnesses say they didn't observe enemy fire when the general's aircraft exploded.

    So, yes Obama is the first president to have general KIA, since WW2. KIA means, "killed in action". I believe General Simon Boliver Buckner, Jr. was the last general KIA.

    I'm sure Obama sees this as a win for the good guys.
